Looks like they've merged threads, sweet! Coated the dash top and bottom with sem rust trap.

Pulled the eng & tranny from my 66 to get better access to weld in the cowl and in preparation to replacing the left side apron and radiator core. Pretty darn easy to pull a 6 cyl, especially after I cut out the radiator core!

Eh, I did a lot of reading on x pipe, h pipe, scavenging, etc... and when it came down to it, I just wanted a clean exhaust that I didn't have to remove when I drop the transmission. I've run straight duals on a few other vehicles as well. I like the sound and I've never had the "popping" sound some people talk about? Maybe they need to tune their cars better.

Anyway, I put a couple hundred miles on it this weekend after the install... weeeeeeeee. It clearly sounds like it has a V8 now (with the single stock exhaust it had, it almost sounded like an I-6), but it's not annoyingly loud and I went with a quieter muffler.

Started restoring the hardware. This parkerizing is pretty cool.

Finally found and ordered the hood hinge nuts to replace mine that were ripped out a few decades ago. Now maybe I can get some paint on the engine bay.
